Lomi Lomi Massage is part of an ancient Hawaiian healing approach. Pule is commonly practiced as an opening ritual for both Ancient Temple Style Lomi Lomi Massage and Aunty Margaret Machado's Big Island Style Lomi Lomi Massage. It is a small blessing that's said silently or aloud prior to the session.
Pule can include:
- calling for guidance
- calling for help
- wishful thoughts
- positive intentions
Pule can also be practiced with your hands on or off the client, as well as one hand on each. Here is a brief video explanation and demonstration of pule:
Pule is open to interpretation and practice by each unique massage therapist for every individual treatment. While pule is often used to start a lomi session, the ways it can be provided can largely vary.
Providers do not have to practice pule to provide LomiLomi massage; however, it is a fairly standard practice and one of the elements that qualifies the treatment in the lomi modality.
